However, passengers were in for a little more travel than anticipated.

FlightAware tracking notes that the 767 departed Paris as UA986 just after noon local time on Sunday, December 15, 2019.

The aircraft was a few hours out of Paris, just about to start the transatlantic crossing, when the crew made the decision to divert due to a suspected fuel leak.

The crew then began to dump fuel and divert to Manchester.

However, that was not the end of the story for passengers.

United made the decision to bus passengers to London.
